Two House Standing Committees Fail To Disclose Their Travel Records
Posted at 4:35 p.m. on May 21, 2013
The House Homeland Security Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee have not filed reports to disclose their travel records indicating what committee members traveled, where they went and at what cost. All other House standing committees have disclosed their travel to the public.
The House Homeland Security Committee has not filed reports for three consecutive quarters. As of this morning, the Clerk of the House did not have on file a committee report for the 2012 third quarter, the 2012 fourth quarter, or the 2013 first quarter.
Also, there is no 2013 first quarter travel report on file for the House Ways and Means Committee.
